Then at 9:48, Kadri picked up his second of the night with a highlight-reel, forehand-backhand deke to beat Bishop for his 14th of the season. It was Kadri’s second multigoal game this season.

“I should’ve had a few more. I had some great chances,” Kadri said. “We’ll save them for later.”

Ondrej Palat hit Carle with a no-look feed at 13:13 of the second and the defenseman beat Bernier stick-side.

Barberio tied it 4 minutes later, putting home the rebound off a scramble in front of Bernier for his fourth of the season and fourth in four games.

Toronto had three straight first-period power plays, but had just three shots to show for it. The Lightning outshot the Maple Leafs 11-6 in the opening 20 minutes.

Tampa Bay had the best scoring chance of the first, short-handed, when J.T. Brown finished a 2-on-1 feed from Nate Thompson at 3:57, but Bernier was there to shut the door.

NOTES: Canadian Olympic hopeful and Lightning star Steven Stamkos missed his 36th game while recovering from a broken right leg. The Markham, Ont., native returned to practice Tuesday after missing Monday with discomfort. … Maple Leafs D Tim Gleason left late in the third period after being hit awkwardly into the boards by Lightning forward Teddy Purcell. Toronto coach Randy Carlyle called it a shoulder issue, adding he didn’t believe it was serious enough for Gleason to miss game time. … Maple Leafs forward David Bolland (ankle) participated in his first game-day skate since getting injured Nov. 2. Toronto defenseman Mark Fraser was a healthy scratch for the 10th straight game, and Paul Ranger was scratched for the 11th consecutive game. … Six-time Canadian Olympic medalist Clara Hughes dropped the ceremonial puck before the game.
